In Topic: ADQF | Game 3 | Boston 3 @ Detroit 0, BOS leads series 2-1

What makes you think the kids are "shook"?  Sure, they're not scoring...neither is anybody else.  Their strength all season was their chemistry.  None of Tatar, Jurco, or Sheahan played as well apart as they did together.  The same is true of Nyquist with Franzen and Legwand; he never produced as well away from those guys as he did with them. 
Babs has yet to use either of those lines in this series.  No wonder they're not producing.  These guys aren't a Zetterberg or Datsyuk who can produce no matter where you put them.  Doesn't mean they're "shook".  It means your coach needs to pull his head out of his ass.

Imo they were very aware of the hits coming and played much more passive than game 1 especially along the boards. Its to be expected but the wings team from game 1 was not the wings team in 2,3. Combination of many things including simple physics but no denying we look passive/hesitant/hurried all at the same time....shook. Game 2 goon s*** was in their heads and that had nobody wanting the puck and all the hot potato turnovers. Team loss for sure....we will regroup and come out flying game 4 and i expect a hard competetive win.

I agree. We've been down before, but this is the first time I really have no hope. I think it's because they look beaten in their demeanor. I've never seen the Wings look so defeated so early in a series. I thought the kids would be all determined and relentless with their never-say-die attitude. But they look completely opposite of the way they looked in the season.Also, I'm really tired of them shooting weakly from bad angles, or intentionally missing the net from the point. It doesn't work if no one is there to grab the bouncing puck.They're not just playing badly, they look like an entirely different team than the past month and that worries me.Sent from my ADR6350 using Tapatalk 2

I agree, our kids are shook. they had no idea what this was gonna be like. The Calder Cup playoffs are not the stanley cup playoffs and we will be a better team for this win or lose. The kids have talent but regualr season and playoff talent are two different beasts. Boston is like our Wings teams of the past sans doosh and goonery. Once they learn how use their strexthgs to exploit weaknesses i think this group will be electrtifying all spring/summer.

Is everyone forgetting that thef****** bruins are a superior team to our skelton squad. God dam, its 2-1 and everyone outside detroit and even some in this forum picked the bruins in 4 scoring 50 goals during the process.

Bruins are where we want to be a a couple years.
If****** hate them but they are a better team and it will take our absolute best game and effort eaxh night witnout any mistakes mentally or physically with some luck to win 4 games against them. Much like game 1. No excuses not to start on time and give them our best game, that part is frustrating though.

Dats makes a crazy play in game 1 and all if a sudden were gonna win the cup this year.

All this bitching and blasting is hilarious considering where we were 2 and a half weeks ago. Admittingly, the forums puke and piss is much more entertaining than the game to tonight.

Geesus, so when the refs actually call penalties, all the dirty bulls*** sort of disappears and hockey is a really great sport to watch.

Love to have that first period back. We also wasted entirely too much energy with all that after the whistle s***. Love how we didn't lay down and eat it but in game 1 we played our game and won, game 2 exact opposite.
